PHOENIX -- A Valley woman has pleaded not guilty to charges that she failed to report her husband for sexually abusing a young boy.

Jennifer Dicamillo entered her plea on Thursday in Maricopa County Superior Court. She’s due back in court for an initial pretrial conference on August 27.

Dicamillo and her husband, Brian Dicamillo, were arrested in June after a 10-year-old boy claimed that Brian Dicamillo had shown him pornographic material.

After further investigation, authorities discovered that Brian Dicamillo had also engaged in sexual conduct with a 6-year-old boy.

Jennifer Dicamillo went on to reveal that she had witnessed her husband abusing the boy on multiple occasions. Brian Dicamillo had reportedly told his wife that “he would not do it again.”

Brian Dicamillo was arrested and charged with several crimes, including sexual exploitation of a minor and furnishing obscene material to a minor. Jennifer Dicamillo was charged with two counts of child abuse (failure to report/protect).

Prior to their arrests, both Jennifer and Brian Dicamillo had worked for the Deer Valley Unified School District.

The District released a statement explaining that since the Dicamillos weren’t under contract at the time of their arrests they would not be placed on administrative leave with pay.
